Be smart. Have some common
sense. Know not to stick your hand
in a toaster
or know the works of Chaucer.
Be addicted. To something.
Be addicted to not being addicted.
Give a shit.
About something; about the world.
About global warming.
Give enough of a shit to donate your
time, or money, or effort.
Be funny (but not mean).
Imagine a universe
where we could choose
which animal we wanted to be
from hour to hour.
I would spring kitten ears
and paws, with a fox tail following.
My rattlesnake eyes would narrow
and my slithery tongue would say
slip slip slap.
